Missed out on the epic Cyberpunk 2077 demo during E3? No worries, CD Projekt RED has officially confirmed that they will be crashing the Gamescom 2019 party with demos, fun, and even a neat cosplay contest that fans of the studio can enter.
The studio will be holding presentations from August 21st through the 24th and will offer special media-only demos as well, just like E3. It will definitely be a fun time and a great way to learn more about the studio's upcoming game while showing off those sweet, sweet cosplay skills.
So where are these Cyberpunk 2077 cosplay contests being held?
- Gamescom (Cologne, Germany), Aug. 21-24
- PAX West (Seattle, USA), Aug. 30-Sep. 2
- Tokyo Game Show (Tokyo, Japan), Sep. 12-15
- Igromir (Moscow, Russia), Oct. 3-6
- Paris Games Week (Paris, France), Oct. 30-Nov. 3
Cosplayers can create their own creations off of characters already revealed (yes, even Keanu Reeves' character), or wait until the official character guides release - which should be coming soon for people to use as a reference. Entries can be submitted here through the official website, or take their fancy new cosplay to one of the locations seen above.
10 total contestants will make the finish line with 5 finalists and 5 winners. The grand finale will be live on a stage with a $40,000 prize pool at stake in addition to being on the cover of an entertainment magazine alongside a few unnamed prizes. The location of the stage hasn't been revealed, but it will closer to when they are ready to host it, which will be sometime early 2020.
